Random Regret Minimization Model
The choices people make are partly determined by their attempt to prevent regret at a later stage. This idea inspired the ESS department (section TLO) to develop its ‘random regret minimization’ (RRM) model: an econometric model that analyses and predicts the choices people make.
Adaptive Delta Management
A majority of the world’s population live in deltas that are rapidly changing due to climate change and socioeconomic development. This fuels the need for an integrated approach for the long-term development of coastal areas that explicitly takes into account all the uncertainty in the development of these dynamic areas. Adaptive Delta Management is such an approach, and the MAS department is a leading contributor to its development.
Spreading the Responsible Innovation Approach
In the last few years, responsible innovation – or as the EU calls it, responsible research and innovation (RRI) – has been developed as an approach to deal early on with ethical and social issues brought about by new technologies. RRI has been defined as ‘on-going process of aligning research and innovation to the values, needs and expectations of society’ (Rome Declaration).
